Grammy Award winners : guitar-slinging royalty : individual award-winners in their own right …. and husband and wife !!! Susan Tedeschi & Derek Trucks front their Tedeschi Trucks Band – an 11 piece overflowing with talent and familial harmony: all having worked alongside each other in the TT core bands: Derek Trucks Band, Susan Tedeschi Band, Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton‘s Band.
Following his awesome slide-guitar work with The Allman Brothers to his position for over a year as Eric Clapton’s featured soloist, Derek Trucks became the youngest musician to make Rolling Stone’s “Top 100 Guitarists of All Time” – and the only one in the Top Twenty under the age of 50!
Susan Tedeschi burst onto the scene with her breakthrough album ‘Just Wont Burn’ which earned her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2000. She followed with a 2003 Best Female Rock Vocal Performance Grammy nomination for Wait For Me and her 2006 Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy nomination for ‘Hope and Desire’. Arguably this generation’s greatest female blues guitarist/singer, Susan Tedeschi is an exceptional blues guitarist, possessing an awe-inspiring vocal prowess with an ability to dig deep and deliver powerful R&B belters or wrap her voice around a gentle ballad.
The Tedeschi Trucks Band returns to Bluesfest and sideshows in Sydney & Melbourne as do their very special guests Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.
Troy ‘Trombone Shorty’ Andrews and Orleans Avenue (TS&OA) stir together old-school New Orleans jazz, funk and soul, laced with hard-rock power chords and hip-hop beats which has led to rave reviews wherever they play. TS & OA haven’t stopped touring since their roof raising performances at Bluesfest in April 2012, their multiple sell out shows in Sydney and an almost sell out performance at the Corner in Melbourne.
This lineup will probably NEVER be repeated – the TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND with special guests TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE load up for this special show.
